PSY 3903W: Capstone in Psychology - Community Engagement

3 CreditsService LearningWriting Intensive

The capstone courses in Psychology synthesize knowledge gained throughout major and create pathways to post-graduation life. Students will reflect on the discipline of psychology and on their experiences in their degree program; class and small group discussions will support this reflection. Students will be provided with access to professionals who are alumni of the psychology program and will have the opportunity to hear these career professionals speak about their varied career paths and to network with them for advice and connections to other professionals. Students will also receive important information regarding graduate school and career preparation from the Psychology Advising Office and CLA Career Services. In this course, you will have the opportunity to connect your study of psychology to important issues in the local community. The Center for Community-Engaged Learning provides students with the opportunity to work onsite at a nearby community organization for approximately four hours each week throughout the semester. Students draw from this community experience to help identify the topic of their capstone paper. In the first week of classes you will receive instructions from the Center for Community-Engaged Learning regarding community site placement. prereq: [3801 or equiv], 3001W, completion of five courses from three distribution areas, PSY major, senior
